Petrenko’s Mahler VI

Wagner Siegfried Idyll
Mahler Symphony No.6

Vasily Petrenko conductor

Wagner’s beautiful and tender Siegfried Idyll, written as a surprise birthday present for his beloved wife, is a delicate love letter, first performed on the staircase of their family home. In contrast, Mahler imagined his mighty Sixth Symphony as a great musical tragedy – the tale of a hero destroyed by fate. He never expected it to happen to him, and he filled every bar of this immense symphony with his most heartfelt and intimate emotions. Both pieces give a musical experience that leaves no listener unmoved, and in the hands of Vasily Petrenko, expect to be stirred to the very depths of your soul.

Vasily Petrenko will provide an introduction from stage before this concert, to help you get even more from the experience.
